Sweetheart Blog Hop

Welcome Sweeties!

I am so glad you decided to visit today. We have a great line-up with so many wonderful projects for the Valentine season. I hope you will be feeling the love after you have seen what we have created. There are only 10 of us, so enjoy the crafts and the goodies along the way.

Here is the line-up and each site will provide a link to the next crafter. 
Georgiana @ Carson's Cricut Creations (That is me)
Cheryl @ Cards by CG
Jen @ Purple scrapbooker
Carri @ A Busy Bee
Celeste @ C.C's Cards and Crafts
Libby @ Beach Creations
Heather @ House Built of Cards
Lisa @ Lisa's Scrap'n Shack
Tracy @ Craft Junkie Too
Star @ Star's Paper Passion

My first card used layered florals as the focal point with Bo Bunny printed paper as the background. There is a black flower brad in the center of the dainty pink petals.

This card below was a special treat (although it is not Valentine related, it is definitely filled with LOTS of LOVE) and I hope the couple that receives this has a beautiful wedding and a happy marriage. A co-worker asked me to make a wedding card after she showed me an invitation. I asked for a piece of the vellum that was included and then I thought how perfect it would be to have a personalized card.
This  card was created for a co-worker's grandkid for Valentine's Day. Can you tell the grandma thinks she is the sweetest? The name is sure to make the little one smile.
Simply Charmed

What is a hop without some goodies?
I am offering a lovely kit that includes: papers, stickers, and chipboards. There are also black letters, a flower stamp, and silver gems.  
Please leave a comment with a way to contact you and share what your "sweetest" memory is for a chance to win these goodies. The winner will be selected by and then announced on Tuesday, February 8th.

As a special bonus since I am feeling quite sweet this morning, if I reach 415 followers or receive 75 comments I will give away another prize pack. If both occur then I will give away two extra goodies. Oh, how I am feeling super sweet now! :)

Be sure to visit Cheryl at Cards by CG next.
 She always has something amazing!

Enjoy and Stay Creative,

  22. Beautiful cards! I especially like the first one with the flowers. My sweetest memory is when my daughter was 3 years old. I went to pick her up from school and when I got there she had a HUGE smile on her face as she handed me a bunch of acorns and said, "I got these for you mommy because I love you SO MUCH!" She is almost 6 now and she still brings acorns home from school for our acorn collection :-) goddessmychele at gmail dot com

  23. Beautiful cards! One of my sweetest memories was when I was a child , on Valentines Day, I came home from school and my Mom had cleaned our bedrooms and a valentine card was laying on our pillow. Mind you, there are 11 kids and 5 bedrooms lol. As a child and out of the norm for my Mom it was pretty special:)

  24. Love your cards! My Best Valentines Memories are when I get up and go out to the kitchen and my husband has a card & Flowers sitting there waiting to surprise me first thing in the morning:)

  25. found your blog through the hot spot., great cards and loved looking through your blog.

  53. All of your cards are so beautiful! Thank you for having along for this wonderful blog hop. It has been tons of fun!
    My sweetest memory is of my daughters first cry. She is adopted and was placed with us when she was 6 weeks old. when we got her she had 15 broken ribs and both legs were broken from having been abused at 11 days old. It took her a month before she ever started to cry because she was afraid that we would hurt her if she did. The doctors said that she would start crying when she felt safe with us. So her first cry is my sweetest memory.

  76. You cards look wonderful! :) That personalized wedding one is just stunning!! They will definitely love it :) I'd have to say my sweetest memory is the first time I got to lay eyes on my son :) We both had an extremely hard and dangerous labor that ended in an emergency c-section (during which I actually felt the knife and scizzors cutting open my belly). It was definitely the scariest 28 hours of my life, but that moment I finally got to see him and hold him...I'd do it all again in a heartbeat :)
    Thank you again for inviting me to join your hop! I had a blast :)

  77. These cards are amazing! Thank you so much for hosting this hop!

  79. All of your cards are fabulous, though the first 2 are my favorites. I know I'm in the minority in this regard, but I'm not a big fan of Create-a-Critter and cutesy in general. But for that style, your designs are really cute. My sweetest memory would have to be the birth of my son almost 39 years ago. I just found your blog and have become a follower as of today. Glad to see you have surpassed both of your goals. Thanks for sharing your talent and inspiration and for giving us a chance at some awesome goodies!

  84. Happy Valentines Day!!! I am your 440th I will be back.

  85. Well dear, it looks like you will be giving away lots of gifts this weekend as I am follower #441 and comment #90! I love these cards - they are all so sweet! I have so many sweet memories I don't know if I can pick just one. One would definitely have to be Valentine's Day 1985 when my husband proposed to me!

  86. I love the color and paper in the first card the best!!!!

  87. Beautiful cards! The first one is my fav. A sweet memory of mine is for my Birthday, my son was 3 or 4 and he made me a cake all on his own. (It was a liquid cake, made with yogurt and juice) It was all his idea and everything.

    Great card. My sweetest memory is when my son was a small boy and made a "special" card just for me.

  91. Great card! Love the cards for your grandkids! Aren't they the BEST!?? My favorite memory is with one of my grandkids. I have a picture of it called 'Mimi's first kiss" (I'm Mimi). Laben was just a baby, can't remember his age at the time. I was holding him, facing me, standing on my legs. We had been trying to get him to say "mama", so we were really emphasizing the "mmm" sound. While I was doing the "mmm" Laben leaned forward and gave "Mimi" her first baby kiss!! (we always made that sound when we kissed him). I guess he connected a kiss with the "mmm" sound! I was so touched I cried! Laben is my first grandson, who is now 17 yrs old, and still kisses his Mimi! And since he know the story behind the picture, he even says "mmm" every once is awhile! I gotta buy that boy a car when he gets his license!! :)

  92. Oops! Forgot to five you a way to contact me. Sorry!

  93. Cute cards. My hubby writes me poems and draws for me places that mean something to us. I love it and everything is put away in a box that I treasure!
